    Built my own the other week with help of the fine people here:
    http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=42858
    Still got to get around to overclocking though except for the graphics cards. The fact there are np less than 4 larges fans and 5 smaller ones makes for a nice and noisy system as well (keeps it very cool though).

    Some specs to save you clicking on the link (which seem remarkably simlar to many others around below which can not really be a bad thing):
    Asus P5N32-E SLi nForce 680 (Socket 775) PCI-Express DDR2 Motherboard:@£152.74

    Jugger, I wouldn't suggest overclocking. If you go too high with insufficient cooling you will break your system. Also, anyone can overclock their video card, but overclocking your processor is alittle bit harder. It requires a specific kind of motherboard, and if you screw it up you can kiss your RAM, motherboard, and CPU goodbye. Video card overclocking usually results in more heat for a couple of added frame rates (my GPU's core isn't very overclockable though).

    "crap I double posted oh well...."

    overclocking is expensive overall. it usually require buying expensive peripheral (micron chips rams are roughly 250+), higher end motherboard. if you want known results you can go to anandtech.com and copy their oc setup from their testing. from my experience, buying budget parts with higher stock cpu usually does the trick =). hell, im still on agp =) and ddr1.

    Yup, quad core.

    Two 2.55ghz Dual-Core Intel Xeons
    4GB ram
    500GB HD
    Nvidia Geforce 7300gt
    Two 16x SuperDrives

    Not a gaming beast, but for video production work, its a dream.
